Web Services not available in recent Mandrake 9.0 install
1. Trying to run web-services fails
2. No expat support installed
I had a working Mandrake 7.x setup that was running Apache, PHP and MySQL. All compiled from source. WSDL worked without any problems. expat support somehow got built-in along the way
MySQL suddenly stopped being run on startup after 10 months or so. Rather than find what the problem was, I installed later version of Mandrake on a better machine.
Default 'server' install run - accepted standard Apache, PHP and MySQL (i.e. have not compiled from source this time).
phpinfo() showed no 'XML' section, and '--with-expat-dir=/usr' in the php 'configure command' section.
I have just run urpmi to install expat, but still no sign of it.
I have the above 2 problems, and have no idea of the next step.
I suppose my questions are:
1. is the lack of expat in the installation causing my web-services problem ?
2. If so, how do I install expat to the correct place ("/usr" ??) and update php to accept it ? (I need expat for some other functionality, so I need to know how / where to install it anyway)
Would appreciate any help.
